    Dance Feast...for the curious and the passionate!

    Summer Stages invites you to celebrate and support its 15th anniversary at an interactive, day-long extravaganza exploring the art of dance and movement!

    Observe and participate in a wide range of tantalizing classes and workshops that offer a delicious array of dance, live music, and activities. Join one of the many sampler workshops to get a taste of Brazilian Capoeira, Swing dance, Disco Funk Line Dancing, or Trash Can Taiko. Indulge in an entrée of Master Classes in Ballet, Modern, Hip Hop, and African dance. Activities offered continuously throughout the day, including Aerial dance, Soundstair, and Hair Art, round out the menu. This satisfying feast will culminate with an all-star presentation by Summer Stages master faculty and special guest artists. Join us for all or any part of Dance Feast and celebrate Summer Stages’ 15th anniversary with a day filled with dance!
